Chicagoland September 2013 Race Review – Mike Wallace



JOLIET, Ill. – Mike Wallace came home 28th Saturday in the Dollar General 300 Nationwide Series race at Chicagoland Speedway.

Wallace, driving the GK Services 01 Chevrolet, qualified in mid-pack at 26th and had trouble improving his positioning for most of the race. He ran in the 20s virtually all afternoon in one of the season’s longest races.

“We had a decent car but not one that we could improve a lot,” Wallace said. “We kept hanging around and hoping circumstances could help us move up, but it was a tough afternoon.”

Wallace retained the 17th position in the Nationwide driver point standings.

Kyle Busch won the race easily, leading 195 of the 200 laps.

The Nationwide Series moves on to Kentucky Speedway for a 300-mile race Sept. 21.
